PostGIS? is an extension to the PostgreSQL? database. Extension provides support for the GIS datatypes such as georeferenced points, lines, polygon, rasters.

Setting up PostGIS? database

Setting up database in Windows is recommended with prebuilt binary distributions as building from the source is a lot more difficult than on unix systems.

On linux install or build latest PostgreSQL? database, currently 9.2. Download latest sources of PostGIS?. Install or build latest proj4, GEOS and GDAL libraries (1.10 recommended). Compile Postgis and install.
